Query: James Sims/Catherine Chaves, Vigo/Newton Counties

            I am interested in information regarding James and Catherine Chaves-Sims. James was born in North Carolina in abt. 1828. He was a barber. He might have lived in Kentland, IN, before 1849. He married Catherine Chaves in Terre Haute, IN, in 1849. I do not have burial or a death date for him. I would appreciate any help you can provide.
            Catherine Chaves was also born in North Carolina abt. 1830. She probably died in Kentland after 1907. I do not have a death date or burial information about her. They were my great-grandmother and great-grandfather. They were both African-American.
            Thanks in Advance,
